As part of its work promoting additional strategies to achieve soil health adoption and foster livestock production in Minnesota, the Sustainable Farming Association is hosting a webinar series focused on silvopasture and agroforestry that will kick off with three separate online workshops in April. Silvopasture is the intentional practice of managing timber, forage and livestock on the same acres to create income opportunities on often under-utilized land.
All these workshops are free and open to all but registration is required. If you wish to attend multiple webinars, complete each event’s distinct registration. The Tuesday, April 14 workshop that will run from 10:30 a.m. to noon will focus on a global and historical perspective of silvopasture with Professor Ashley Conway of the University of Missouri Center for Agroforestry.
The Thursday, April 16 workshop will also run from 10:30 a.m. to noon and will feature a discussion on silvopasture in the Midwest with U of M Extension’s Gary Wyatt and Co-Executive Director of the Savanna Institute Keefe Keeley.
Register for these workshops and learn more at sfa-mn.org/soil. These workshops will be held using the Zoom web conference tool; meeting login information will be sent to registrants prior to each workshop.
